    that while you can criticize this or that Dem, you have to accept their overall good intentions as a party, and that working WITH the party, as opposed to in opposition to it, be it from within or without, is the only way to get things done. I'm not calling for anyone to go indie or join or start a 3rd party. I haven't given up on the Democratic party, per se, as I still see it as the most effective organization to achieve progressive reform. I've just given up on its present leadership and agenda on this count, and want to see them toppled and replaced, with people like Warren, Boxer, Baldwin and Ellison.

    I.e. actual progressives. I want the Democratic party to be the progressive party again, not the fake progressive but actually neoliberal party. I'm tired of being punked by these corporate shills and lackeys, from the top on down.
